Has anyone experienced dark stool during pregnancy? I had it earlier in pregnancy for a few days and then it stopped and today I had it again. I haven't changed my vitamins for a while. I skip some days LOL, but usually take it at bedtime.

I think it depends on how dark the stool is whether it's normal or not. Deep dark, nearly black stools can be a sign of bleeding in the intestinal tract (I have Crohn's disease and have experienced those). Anything lighter than that, as long as it's not accompanied by pain is probably just something you ate! Pepto Bismal will cause darkened stools as well...though not black. I'm sure what you're experiencing is normal (though if you feel pain, see your doctor!).
